What We're Reading - The Dinosaur That Pooped a Planet by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter

If you have never heard of The Dinosaur That Pooped a Planet you've either been living under a rock or your not a parent. The book written by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter hit it big time with children all across the world and now have several books in the series. We actually own several of the Dinosaur That Pooped books and they are always a massive hit! In fact I had to double check that we hadn't shared any before in our What We're Reading posts.

The Dinosaur That Pooped a Planet has always been well loved in our house. When we first got it Dylan would choose it nightly as our bedtime story. Over time it's not been read as much as it was in the beginning but it regularly features as the bedtime story of choice. This last month has been one of those times and Dylan has chosen it as his favourite of the month. 

The Dinosaur That Pooped a Planet is about a little boy called Danny and his pet dinosaur who are bored one day. They take a trip to the science museum and end up going on a wonderful adventure in a rocket ship to space! They run into trouble when his pet dinosaur gets hungry and eats everything it can find. How will Danny and Dinosaur get home from space?

It's pretty obvious that there is a lot of poop talk involved in this story and honestly it's pretty much Dylan's favourite part! He loves to shout all the toilet related words and phrases as we read along. 

Throughout the whole story of The Dinosaur That Pooped a Planet the writing follows a lovely rhyming rhythm. Each page flows so well into the next so the story is very easy to read while having fun and adding a little extra emphasis to all the gross or exciting parts. 

Each page inside the book brings the story to life through beautiful, bright illustrations. Dylan loves to spot things on each page and will often be found with the book in bed after he's fallen asleep looking at the pages. The bright and simple design is lovely while still depicting everything that happens in the story with every detail you imagine it needs. 

Over all I have to say even Simon and I enjoy The Dinosaur That Pooped a Planet .It's a perfect book for children who enjoy toilet humour. It is not a requirement with so much to love about Danny and his pet dinosaur that I am sure most children will enjoy the book.

You can purchase The Dinosaur That Pooped a Planet by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter for £5.24 from Amazon.
